You appear to be changing the subject. You earlier said:steve_bank said:It is pure ignorance. I will leave to Angra to do his won homework and find out where the O2 he breathes comes from, along with rhe ocean's part in the carbon cycle.
steve_bank said:The loss the ocean nurseries erpresented by the loss of coral reefs affects all life in the ocean. The ocean dies and we die.
I replied, and now you seem to have changed to oxygen depletion. Fair enough, that that would be a much more serious threat - though it is not what you had brought up before.
So, on that note, do you have a specific model you'd like me to address?
I did find a pretty catastrophic one. However:
1. The global oxygen depletion model in question seems to require a level of global warming very improbable for a very long time, which allows for much more advanced responses (see below).
2. I would have to take a closer look (no time at the moment), but from what I can tell, the model is not meant to be realistic and is not considering how species that produce oxygen can adapt to warmer temperatures.
3. The model certainly does not consider potential interventions by means of genetically modified organisms that produce oxygen, which become an option given the amount of time required for collapse.
Anyway, perhaps you had a different model in mind, so do you have a link to one you'd like me to address?
